EP 70 Aligning to Your Values and Creating Space for Yourself
This epsiode dives into what it feels like to button up a 3 month long cleanout project. How to be kind to yourself while doing it and all the emotions that come up as you take on your wanted and unwanted material posessions.
You really realize doing some inner work around your values, actually simplifies your life and helps you walk your talk, make decisions, create community and a relationship to yourself that backs you up time and time again. The needed or desired boundaries become more clear as you step into this way of holding yourself accountable, creating some space for yourself amongst it all.
There are a lot of feelings tied up in what we physically have in our life. Having an emotional outlet beyond the acts of donating, recycling and trashing what you don't need, is essential self care. A lot of answers come in the doing, moving us forward.
Need support on your personal unpacking or want to get clear on your values? Reach out for a comfortable space to unlayer all the stored emotions and feelings that go along with your unpacking your life. Thanks for listening in. ~Janae
Ps. Previous epsiodes, 68 and 69 are part of this trio.
EP 69 Do I really need this in my life?
Hello again, This episode is about taking on all the emotions and physical trapping of too much stuff! Everything in storage is getting my attention. The simplification project outside the tiny house and inside myself continues on! I'm saying yes and no with equal amounts of enthusiasm and hopefully inspiring others to do the same. I've learned so much by taking this project on. It's freeing and worth the effort, both physically and emotionally.
Things that have helped with the simplification and sorting process:
Designated areas for Donate, Recycle/Garbage, Sell/Consign
Asking family members if they want any of the genrational goodies!
Putting more emotional/detailed sorting into labeled bins to go through in another season.
Be kind to yourself and allow all the emotions
Baby steps and all day clean outs are both form of progress.
EP 68 Doing Things Differently, Getting Messy and Motivated
Hello there, This episode is about not waiting for perfect conditions, listening to your body, and feeling the layers of your life. Physical and emotional memories may be in boxes in storage or buried deep within. Time to clear out and clear up what feels better on the inside and let go, donate, recycle, regift the rest.
Join me in taking on all the emotions and physical trapping of too much stuff; saying yes and no with equal amounts of enthusiasm! Let the simplification project outside the tiny house and inside myself begin!

Clarity and Abundance, A Catalyst For Simple, Abundant And Embodied Living
Hello and welcome to the Simple, Abundant and Embodied podcast series with micro episodes here for you whenever you need them. Today we will be talking about Abundance and Clarity
Abundance is a side effect of doing what we love fully and being who we are fully. It is a deep breath for our whole being. Moving into an abundant mindset from one of scarcity is life changing and brings us more clarity of what we truly want for ourselves. What do you truly want for yourself? This shift is transformational and is available to us freely. Accept where you are, who you are and revel in it. We are in command, not control of what happens or what has happened to us. Thinking about this from a state of abundance rather than lack and scarcity fills us up.
Getting clear that life happens for us not to us is expansive, abundant and enriching ultimately giving us a clarity and clear way of being that supports us through life's ups and down. As sweet as this sounds, we are not just here for the milk and cookies. We grow and expand in relationship to our courage to get clear on what we really want and how we want to feel at the end of each day. How do we bring in more clarity you may ask. Let’s face it life is complicated, get curious not complacent. Even if you don’t quite believe it yet or in every situation, Come from a place in your mind, where you are already worthy, walk into a room, engage in a conversation with clarity and conviction. This creates abundance within, little by little, step by step. Build upon that because truly you are enough, worthy and loveable just as you are.

Janae asks intriguing questions and guides the conversation in enjoyable ways. She’s a pleasure to listen to and a pleasure to speak with. I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the show and have loved exploring her other well-constructed episodes.
Self Care Passport
I absolutely love Janae’s Self Care Passport series and put many of her suggestions to work. From finding my focus word for the year (balance) to being able to say “yes” and “no” with equal enthusiasm, her words resonate with new perspectives and goals that I have planned for the new year. Thank you, Janae!
Janae has such a calm voice and shares great information. I listened to one of her podcasts for the first time this morning and now I want to keep on going and listen to more while I get ready for the day. Very motivating!
